Any idea why and how long they were shut down for?

You just linked to OP's only other post asking the exact same question but with no answers.

I don't recall if Transwest was ever shut down. Westwind was, in the aftermath of the ATR crash in Fon Du Lac, but I think Transwest kept flying throughout. Same owners, different OC. I haven't heard much news from SK since then. Westwind brought in Sunwest, Cariboo, and anyone else they could to keep the people going places untill they could iron out the cultural changes needed.

Just heard it was for 3-4 days only. Altimeter static tests weren’t done on any aircraft.

No fly call was at about 3pm. Had some airplanes back flying within a few hours, the rest the next day. Something to do with altimeter certification that apparently many companies do and transport doesn't like. Should see it happen elsewhere as well.
